Contents The Established Therapies: HF-PEF and HF-REF -- Novel Therapies for the Prevention and Management of Acute Decompensated Heart Failure -- A Comprehensive Transition of Care Plan For a Patient Admitted with Acute Decompensated Heart Failure -- Volume Assessment and Management: Medical and Device Therapies
Summary This volume reviews potential future therapies for heart failure, with a particular focus on ambulatory acute decompensated heart failure and the transitions from therapies in the acute setting to chronic management. Although in the developed world the incidence of and mortality from coronary heart disease and stroke have been declining over the last 15 years, heart failure is increasing in incidence, prevalence and overall mortality, despite advances in the diagnosis and management of the condition. Pharmacologic Trends of Heart Failure builds on the current understanding of pathophysiological mechanisms and insights gained from previous studies of therapeutic interventions. It is designed to establish the baseline level of knowledge that a cardiovascular professional needs to know on a day-to-day basis
